Cellbusters Zone Protector™

The Zone Protector™ is the ultimate detection device. It is capable of detecting all cell phones (any carrier and any protocol in all countries) when the phone is in standby mode, texting, making a call or transmitting data.

In fact, the Zone Protector™ is far more sophisticated than a cell phone detector. Comparable to a spectrum analyzer, the Zone Protector™ has the ability to scan user-definable frequency ranges along with the ability to alert, notify, control a third party device, or simply log as soon as it detects relevant transmission activity.

Precise frequency filtering technology, managed and controlled by a 32-bit microprocessor, enables the Zone Protector™ to deliver accurate detection with virtually zero false positives.

The Zone Protector™ is extremely versatile. Depending on the demands of your environment, it can be deployed as a portable device for standalone operation or as a network device for centralized monitoring and management.

Your investment is protected thanks to the clever future-proof design, which allows you to easily add channels or frequencies, or update the firmware as cell phone technology evolves well into the future.

Adjustable Detection Range

The detection range of the Zone Protector™ can easily be adjusted depending on the environment. For example, it is possible to restrict the detection radius to a small conference room or to expand the it to scan an entire open plan office, factory floor, or warehouse.

Preset detection sensitivity can be selected using a button combination on the Zone Protector™ without the need for a connected computer, thus simplifying deployment. The easy-to-use web interface allows for more granular control depending on requirements.

Portable or Network Deployment

The Zone Protector™ can be carried as a portable device, deployed as a standalone device in conference rooms or classified areas, or it can be connected to the network, depending on requirements or restrictions.

With many power options such as the included universal A/C adapter, Power over Ethernet (PoE) connectivity or the optional internal rechargeable battery, the Zone Protector™ is ideally suited to any situation.

For Portable or Network Use

Third Party Device Control

The Zone Protector™ can be set to control a third device once an alert is raised. The included relay alert option can activate beacons, alarms, strobes, access control devices, cell phone jammers etc. The length of time for which the relay stays active after an alert is raised can also be configured via the web interface.

control third party devices

Flexible deployment options suited to most environments

The Zone Protector™ can also communicate over an existing Wifi network via a wireless bridge such as the Motorola CB3000 client bridge, ideal should structured cabling be unavailable.

It is also possible to install the Zone Protector™ inside a tamper proof and environmentally controlled enclosure for industrial or more rugged applications. This flexibility ensures the Zone Protector™ can be quickly and easily deployed in almost any environment.

Connect Over Wi Fi

Protect your investment

The Zone Protector™ is fully upgradeable and supported by Cellbusters, ensuring your investment is protected. New carrier frequencies can easily be added via the web interface or simply download and install firmware updates as necessary. While the Zone Protector™ includes email support and a standard 12-month warranty, it is also possible to choose from additional warranty upgrades such as 36 months extended and enhanced options depending on your requirements.

The Zone Protector is a passive frequency detection device capable of detecting cell phone transmission activity. It is important to note that cell phones in standby mode are not continuously transmitting and may be undetected during silent periods as a result. It is therefore advisable to deploy the Zone Protector(s) in the area you are trying to protect, as opposed to deploying at an entrance or doorway, for example. The detection range of the Zone Protector may vary due to environmental factors and also the vagaries of cellular RF transmissions.

Zone Protector™ – Device Front View

The Zone Protector™ form factor is similar to that of a wireless access point and would not look out of place in any environment. Status indicator LED, high visibility LEDs and the mute switch are well positioned on the front of the device for clear visibility and access.

Zone Protector™ – Device Rear View

The Zone Protector™ rear panel provides access to power connectivity, relay connectivity, network connectivity, and connectivity for an optional external antenna via an SMA interface. The audio out jack provides connectivity for an optional external speaker or amplifier for use in noisy environments. Access to the optional internal rechargeable battery compartment is also provided at the rear of the device.

Zone Protector™ – Easily add or manage individual detection channels

View, add or manage detection channels in seconds via the Zone Protector’s web interface. To add a detection channel simply enter a channel name along with the lower and upper frequency of the range you wish to detect. The versatile design of the Zone Protector™ allows you to control the sensitivity and alerting methods for each individual detection channel. For example, a specific audio clip could be played when a 4G signal is detected but only the relay needs to be energized when a Wifi signal is detected.

Zone Protector™ – View and control alert settings

The Zone Protector™ allows you to choose alert settings that are best suited to your environment. For example you can upload your own custom audio WAV files for more localized or custom announcements. You can choose to select visual alerting only or switch alerting off so the device just silently logs activity. Other settings include audio alert wait time or how the device behaves should the relay be activated, also used in activation of Cell jammers.
